SCOTLAND Schooner, sunk at mouth of Beauharnois Canal. 8,000 bushels of wheat. Will likely be raised.

      . . . . .

      Accident to the schooner Scotland;- We regret to state that Mr. Brunakill's fine schooner Scotland struck on a rock at the mouth of Beauharnois Canal, on her trip to Montreal with a cargo of about 10.000 bushels of wheat. She was in tow of a steamer at the time, and was hauled into the canal, where she sank.
      The Cargo was insurred for L 20.000 in the Protection Company, which would cover its value, even if a total loss, which is impossible, and the vessel in the British America and St. Lawrence Companies for L 500 each. The damage to the vessel is supposed to be small. The rock on which she struck was the same on which the MAGNET was run
last fall. We have no doubt that steps will immediately be taken to remove this obstructionto to the navigation- The Scotland cleared from Milan. on the 11th inst. with a cargo of 7,000 bushels wheat shipped by Wisber & Ely.
